Missing actor found dead, foul play not suspected


VANCOUVER, British Columbia (WKOW) -- Police in Vancouver say the body of "Growing Pains" actor Andrew Koenig has been discovered more than a week after he was reported missing.

Police will not release a cause of death because the coroner's office has not wrapped up its investigation but they do not suspect foul play.

Friends found Koenig's body Thursday in a heavily wooded area about 100 feet from a popular foot path.

His father said Thursday his son "took his own life." Also an actor, Walter Koenig played Pavel Chekov on the original "Star Trek" TV series.

Andrew Koenig is best known for his recurring role on the 1980s sitcom "Growing Pains," appearing as Kirk Cameron's pal Richard "Boner" Stabone.
